Triana Ramirez demonstrates how to do Peek-a-Boo!

Triana Ramirez demonstrates how to do Peek-a-Boo!


1. Apply white polish to the nail, and without letting it dry, add a drop of black and a drop of orange polish. 


2. With a fan brush, fade the three colors side to side while still wet to create the desired effect.


3. Using a fine design brush, paint two white petal shapes to create the ghosts.


4. Fill the petals with white paint and allow to dry. Paint the ghost’s eyes and the word “Boo!” with black paint and a fine design brush. Finish with a clear top coat.
